Coinbase is not the only firm looking at targeting Wall Street with new product offerings.

Its new product, Coinbase Custody, partners Coinbase with an SEC-regulated broker-dealer for third-party auditing and financial reporting validation.

Citing the plans of over 100 hedge funds that have revealed plans to trade in cryptocurrencies in the past few months alone, Coinbase says that a shift in the market has prompted a growing need to cater for high-end clients and institutions interested in the emerging investment opportunities cryptocurrency offers. Additionally, Coinbase feels that these products will help increase awareness and adoption by mainstream investors in the cryptocurrency market. Also, the arrival of bigger financial participants in the crypto market can possibly have instigated Coinbase to develop these initiatives.
